With wits pouring in we don’t think that this Pandora’s Box is closing anytime soon.
The Central Government took the country by surprise after announcing the ban of Rs. 500 and Rs. 1000 notes in the awe to fight against black money. Instantly after the announcement, along with meme generators, tweeples and social media fanatics, brands too got into tweeting and posting.
Considering the fact that its already been a while since the new operation took over, some brands still haven’t gotten over it thus keeping the political buzz heated.
Knocking us off their wits and wordplay, some brands have managed to clinch on the current news and turned it in their favor.
Emphasizing further on their tag line ‘Paytm Karo’ the brand wittily uses their tagline. Afterall, this decision from the Government’s led to an extremely fertile land for marketing for this brand.
We have got two words for you: Paytm Karo.
